This question already has an answer here:
For example, if I was talking about struggling with math homework, or I was at war with another country for purely economic reasons, would the word 'jihad" be appropriate? By definition, does the word refer to a holy struggle?
About the possible duplication of this question: I don't know how that question is even remotely like mine other than that they both use the word jihad. I don't care about the obligation to follow jihad. I want to know if I am an Arabic speaking child, if I struggle with math, is that a jihad.
